In 2006, Reconvilier was revitalized by a team of new investors and renewed its commitment to superior craftsmanship and bold innovation. For the past five years made-to-order Reconvilier timepieces have been sold exclusively in Europe.
I am thrilled to bring the Reconvilier collections to the U.S. for the first time, the collection represents true devotion to the traditions of excellence, Swiss craftsmanship and a passion for innovation, said Reconvilier USA CEO Fernando Napolitano.
The made-to-order Classic Collection features a modern dial in an elegant and classic watch housing. The models are available in steel, white gold and pink gold with various colors for dials and numbers available. The watch straps are also customizable in leather or exotic skins. Powering the watch is the Automatic - ETA caliber 2824-2 movement.
The Reconvilier Golf-Master collection is the perfect solution for the discerning golfer: a true innovation, it combines traditional Swiss watch making with state-of-the-art technology for the savvy golf enthusiast precious yet robust, a water resistant and shock-absorbing wristwatch with analogue displays for hours, minutes and seconds. One side of the face is a beautifully crafted and classic Swiss watch. When the face is rotated 180 degrees the other side houses modern GPS technology that measures the precise distance from you to the green. To make this unique combination possible, Reconvilier developed a new housing mechanism known as Rotar. The Golf-Master is the first luxury watch to feature this unique technology.
